This rich, chunky dish is kind of like the old steak au poivre. Serve it with the rich, chunky mushroom sauce.
- 6 New Mexico red chiles
- 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
- 4 tablespoons oil
- 4 filet mignon steaks (about 8 ounces each)
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Spread out the chiles on a baking sheet and roast for about 30 seconds. Remove the seeds and stems, place the flesh in a food processor and chop coarsely. In a coffee grinder, grind the peppercorns to about the same consistency as the chiles. Mix the two and reserve in a pie pan.
In a large sauté pan over high heat, heat the oil until it begins to smoke. Dredge each steak on 1 side in the pepper mixture and cook, pepper-side down, for one minute, or until brown and crisp. Turn the meat over, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 3-4 minutes more, until done to your liking.
Serve with mushroom sauce. Spoon a little sauce over each steak and pass the rest in a bowl.
